My rear brake drums are stuffed and I am having trouble finding replacements - does anyone know if you can bolt drums from a Navara or Pathfinder on to an MK rear axle (h233 diff). Alternately is there anything else that will fit - was a bit tempted to convert to discs but would need to replace brake lines and get certified here in New Zealand so cost would outway the benefits.

Repco have them here, is it possible to get nthem on the brake lathe and true them up ten use oversize linings if necessary?
There's plenty of meat in those drums so they should take a few skims.

That is our last resort plan if we can't find replacements - would need to machine then add a sleeve, as have about a 5mm lip on them at present

I have just purchased replacement shoes for rear brakes and parking brake from BNT here in Blenheim, NZ. They had them on the shelf. Repco have also had them in the past.

PS Oops - Just noticed it is the drums not shoes you want. I wonder if GQ drums fit?

Yes BNT stock front and rear pads and also front rotors just not the rear drums. Did some GQ models come with drums - thought they all had rear discs?

Anyone in New Zealand that has a spare set of drums - feel free to PM me with a price for them.

I am pretty sure the early GQs had drums on the rear. Why not ask in the GQ forum? Also MQs being parted appear quite often on Trademe - should be able to pick up a set cheap. Look under Safari as well as MQ and MK
